DC vs MI Dream 11 Top Picks

Ishan Kishan

The MI team management went bonkers to sign Ishan Kishan back in the MI squad. The destructive southpaw is clearly amongst the biggest game-changers in T20 cricket and therefore will be a key player to watch out for. The flamboyant cricketer has so far amassed 1452 runs in 61 games at a staggering strike rate of 136.34.

Shardul Thakur

DC’s new recruit Shardul Thakur was one of the unsung heroes of CSK’s title-winning campaign in 2021. The 30-year-old will not just bolster DC’s seam-bowling unit but also add to the batting firepower in the lower middle over. Thakur has picked up 67 dismissals in 61 matches at a remarkable average of 27.87. Lord Thakur will surely be sanguine to give his best for his new team from the very beginning.

Jasprit Bumrah

MI’s premier speedster Jasprit Bumrah is a nemesis for batters in the death overs. His toe-crushing yorkers and raw pace make him a deadly force with the ball. Rohit Sharma will rely heavily on his seasoned campaigner to spearhead their inexperienced pace attack.

Match Prediction: Who Will Win?

Mumbai Indians are the only team that will get the home advantage in the league stages of IPL 15. Back in IPL 2010, MI played 7 matches in the CCI stadium out of which they won 6 times. However, records might give MI an edge but DC is a stronger outfit on paper. The match might go down the wire but DC might have an upper hand over MI in the second match of IPL 2022.
